    Got the vinyl decals removed and then spent this morning washing and polishing the van ready for our trip.

    Remove the decals?.. Quite simply we didn't like them.

    Is it an Eddie stobart van in disguise opp5:sorry2::sorry2::imoutahere:

    Think all panel conversions look better plain

    Or with colour but defiantly devoid of decals

    You think you have.

    We had some, I removed them but years on, in the right light, they can still be seen. No amount of polishing removes the ghost.

    Looks great.
    Wish I could get rid of mine. I hate them and think they look really tacky. ( only mine I mean, most others look nice!)

    Hair dryer or heat gun softens them and lets you peel them off. Not exactly easy but still DIY.

    Looks excellent to me. Huge areas of blank white ( usually ) need something to liven them up.

    Thats actually a lay-by, the kerb stones separate the lay-by from the road which is a dead end with only 6 houses on it, so its rarely driven on and moss grows freely.
